Listening to music also lowers feelings of tension and anxiety which helps you to calm down which will result in you being able to concentrate better. (Cho, 2014) Music can also be used if you setting time break so for every
Sandra Ball-Rokeach and Melvin DeFleur (1976) originally proposed Dependency Theory. It is derived from the Uses and Gratification Theory by Blumler and Katz (1974) wherein it is a limited effects theory. In other words, it grants individuals much control over how they employ media in their lives. Media scholars believed on the power of media but some scholars argued about the incompatibility of limited-effects and powerful-effects model that is why Dependency theory takes a step in the direction of viewing how both models may give an account to explain media effects. Just like uses and gratifications theory, this approach rejects the casual assumptions of the early reinforcement hypothesis- the idea that media simply reinforce previously
‘When we 're stressed out, our bodies tense up and we physically clench. The stress ball prompts you to squeeze and release, which can leave you feeling less tense than you started. “The benefit of squeezing is that it releases some kind of energy — it also induces you to relax,” Posen says.’ (https://www.huffingtonpost.com.au/entry/stress-relief-tools-old-fashioned-remedies_n_3022241) I included earphones because even I myself find that music helps me relax and unwind as it does for many people. Some even find that it helps them concentrate, so that’s another benefit too! Journals are another good way to keep yourself resilient.
Even if you just get out, walk around, and stretch for a few minutes, taking a break can help everyone feel a little more energized and refreshed. Plus, it is important to visit rest stops or otherwise take regular bathroom breaks when you can, especially if you have young passengers traveling with you. One of the worst things on a road trip is to be far from a rest stop and have someone in the vehicle announce that he needs to go to the bathroom right now. If you have two or more drivers, it is also a good idea to switch driving responsibilities regularly. This will allow each driver to rest for a while, decreasing your chances of having a driver who falls asleep at the wheel.
This fact is arguable since many uses of time have been documented considering the improvement in technology and the motor industry. Some studies have gone further to differentiate between travel time and activity time as being mutually exclusive (Lyons & Urry, 2005). In contrast, this division is blurry because many people are using their travel time to engage in personal or work activities (Lyons & Urry, 2005). The ability to actually utilize the time of travel may in essence help prevent the effects of stress incurred by the impact of travel time on wellbeing. Travel time for work purposes can be used to type, write, think, make phone calls and send text messages.
Also, tying the theory to agenda setting, if the individual is so dependent on the media for information, the media will have much more influence and power over the individual making it easy for the media to agenda set. Therefore, the individual may easily fall victim to media Agenda Setting. The theory is based on some assumptions and statements which are: A proposal that there's an integral relationship among audiences, media and the larger social system. Media Dependency theory predicts that an individual depends on media information to meet certain needs and achieve certain goals, same as uses-and-gratifications theory. However, you do not depend on all media
From Iso Ahola theory, it establishes the escaping/seeking model which proposes two sets of motivational forces driving individuals in all aspects of their life. It is whether their desire is to escape personal or interpersonal environment and search for personal and interpersonal rewards. The strengths that can get from this theory is it can give a positive emotion. When the tourist goes for their personal environment escape and went to the destination that they felt they can get away from an environment that they usually go, they have a chance to develop positive mind where there forget about their problem and stress. If they choose for interpersonal environment escape, it also can make positive emotions because they can avoid people they did not want to meet and avoid interactions with other

Uses & Gratifications and the Reality Television context. Blumler and Katz’s ‘Uses and Gratification theory’ (1974) suggests that media users play an active role in choosing and using the media. This theory shifted the focus from what media do to the people to what people do with the media, thus it’s an audience centric theory. It examines the nature of audience involvement and gratification obtained from viewing the television. The Uses Approach of this theory assumes that the viewers or the audiences are active and willingly expose themselves to media and that the most potent of mass media content cannot influence anyone who has no use for it, but, can only influence those viewers who have some use for the media in the environment he/she
